Tim and Ryan,

I’m back and I think I figured out the the point of season 2. I’ll get to it in minute but first some questions for you…

Why is Peter led away in custody?? Ilaria was listening and waiting. They clearly have influence so why is their man in custody? And if Ilaria wanted the infertility stuff so bad, why didn’t they just send the Scyth? Why did they have to dupe Julia with the Narvik C story?

Why does Sarah make Alan immortal? Is it punishment? If so, I don’t think giving Alan more time to hunt and kill immortals is a punishment (TXM-7!!).

If it wasn’t a punishment why, oh why is immortality a gift for Alan?

So I called the “Do you know the way to San Jose” as a code phrase set up by Alan. But really, its a code that can only be answered by Julia?? Why not simply say “Hey Soren/Caleb, whatever your name is, if Julia ever shows up looking for me and the cure, give it her. Just make sure its Julia, you remember the beautiful, immortal doctor… no not Dr. Jordan, Dr. Julia, Hataki’s daughter!”

Now on to the point of season 2…… Meaningless death.

We spend a whole epidsode catching up with Hataki just so he can die. Did we really need to see his Andy Griffith skipping insanity just so that Julia could kill him?

Bad ass soldier Balleseros (who gets a Starring credit for Mark Ghanime) returns for a trumped up cameo just so he can die. And he dies by falling down a tower? Really? He didn’t even get a warrior’s death.

We watch Sarah fret and fuss over her son. She’s goes to great lengths to keep him alive. She won’t take him near smoke! And then she turns her super special, immortal son over to some local doctor… just so the son can die!

And finally Amy goes out with a whimper. I admit that Amy getting dental work from the toothless, hissy women with knives was good, but then Amy doesn’t die??

After this season of Helix I kind of feel like Landrymoto… confused, deformed and just want to go home. Thanks for the excellent podcast gentlemen, I’m not sold on season three but if I watch I will listen to you guys!

–Leo in Phoenix

P.S. What the frak is in the safety deposit box???????

Interview With Sean Tucker (Brother Landry)

Welcome to the Helix Podcast, a fan podcast that dives deep into the SyFy series “Helix.”

Ryan and I had the privilege to talk with Helix cast member Sean Tucker about his eerie and interesting Brother Landry character on the show, comics, sci-fi, and so much more! Sean’s character is an integral part of the season 2 plot, and we’d been chomping at the bit to talk with him.

The Landry character has exhibited some interesting traits over this season. He is dedicated in a twisted way. It was time for us to get to the true origin of the character.

Warning: Spoilers Ahead! – The interview features plot points from all Season Two Helix episodes up through Plan B, so please watch those episodes before listening to the interview!

Sean was so generous in sharing his time to chat with us. It was a fun talk. Thanks again Sean! We are hoping to talk with Sean again after all episodes of Season Two have aired.

Cool fact: Sean is the co-founder and managing partner of the New Ottawa Repertory Theatre

Interview With Neil Napier (Dr. Peter Farragut)

Welcome to the Helix Podcast, a fan podcast that dives deep into the SyFy series “Helix.”

Ryan and I had the privilege to talk with friend of the podcast Neil Napier about what has been going on with the character of Dr. Peter Farragut so far in Season Two of Helix, and much more.

Peter has in our opinion crossed 0ver to the dark side this season, and may have already headed past the point where redemption is possible. Neil has played Peter with an evil ferocity this season. It was time to catch up and see where we’ve been so far…

Warning: Spoilers Ahead! – The interview features plot points from all Season One Helix episodes up through Plan B, so please watch those episodes before listening to the interview!

Neil is always incredibly generous in sharing his time to chat with us. It was a fun talk. Thanks again Neil!

Be sure to follow Neil on Twitter @neilnapier. We’ll be talking to Neil again in after the end of Season 2 to get the complete story on Peter’s story arc this season!

Listener and Helix fan from New Zealand that wrote in to explain why we see actors names in the credits that may not actually appear in the episode. Thanks for clarifying that Kyan!

He also shared a potential easter egg. The infamous “Wilhelm Scream” sounds like it appeared in sound mix of the Coast Guard radio static.

Hey guys!! I recently began listening to your podcast, and I love it!!  I listened to all of Season One, which was great as it helped me remember everything that went on back then.  And it got me to buy the Season One discs.  Now I listen each week to the current show.  I am really enjoying everything you do.  One thing that has been on my mind, and I shout into my headphones, is “What about Soren”?  Well, I guess now we know!!  This last episode was terrific and I can’t wait to hear what you have to say about it.  I will be heading over to Itunes to give you a 5 star rating. Keep up the good work!

Feedback

  • Denise: My theory is that St. Germain is exile island for immortals who don’t play nice in the Illaria sandbox. My question is this…Could Jordan’s baby survive outside the womb since it is technically an immortal and could there be a way to age the baby?

Favorite Five

This is Day 7

  1. Alan comes clean
  2. Amy gets put in the corner
  3. Peter and Anne get comfy in Ratville (are we shipping?)
  4. Michael is a jealous gentleman, and he likes to talk to paintings.
  5. Sometimes it’s not a good idea to drink the Kool-aid

Plot discussion

Day 7

  • Ilaria Corporation
    • Mlle.Durant tells Michael’s origin story to Julia.
    • Michael’s plan has been to create a society where only he can procreate and all other men are infertile – so that he can find a way to father an immortal child.
    • Julia decides she has to go to the island.
  • “The Fellowship”
    • Olivia and others are hiding the infected
    • The non-infected ones drink Michael’s concoction of the heart-stopping Monks Hood plant. Anne calls it a ‘Thinning’ – decision made to thin the fellowship slate clean and start over.
    • Amy rebels against Michael and she is locked up in the botany lab
  • The Doctors
    • Sarah’s baby is gone
    • Alan remembers some of what happened and confides in Sarah
    • Sarah flips out
    • 83 Mycotics and they only can account for 4
    • Kyle opts to keep Amy in the lockbox with the crazy plants

Big Burning questions of the week

  • Did Alan harvest the baby and give it to Sister Amy?
  • Could you get behind Michael’s plan for shepherding the flock?
  • Is Peter’s plan to infiltrate Michael’s fellowship in order to foil his plan for Ilaria?
  • What can Balleseros do with one dose of the Narvik cure?
  • Why is Balleseros not helping humanity, or is he truly selfish?
  • Why the hell do they put people in the credits that aren’t in an episode one week, and then don’t list them the next week? Is this intentional?
  • We still have no idea what the teeth thing is… as well as the deal with the eyes, and the skulls. Theory: The skulls are all the young boys on the island…
  • What is Sarah’s mission?
  • Will Amy have to endure the planting?
  • Will the timelines converge?

Death count

  • A large portion of the fellowship. 50 or so?
